MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police are looking for the person who opened fire inside a business off of Winchester.

“Kind of freaked me out a little bit.”

Stephanie Sawner works for a construction company at the industrial plaza on Commerce near Winchester and Lamar. When she arrived at work on Thursday, she found a piece of crime scene tape tied around the door knob.

“I’m really curious to what happened up here. It’s got me unnerved just a little bit.”

According to police, officers were flagged down by two men who said they had been shot. Investigators believe it happened at a business at the industrial park, where someone was cutting hair after 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Witnesses said they heard the door open, someone fired multiple shots and they saw at least one person fall the floor.

Along with the two men who flagged down police, a third victim showed up at the hospital and said he was shot in the foot.

Sawner said it’s normally quiet during the day, but after seeing this, she doesn’t want to be here by herself.

“Makes me a little unsettled. I’m glad I carry.”

Police said when they got here, someone inside was already cleaning up the crime scene.

So far, police have not released a motive or any suspect information. If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at (901)528-CASH.
